Mary Parker Tuvo su Tercera Cirugía de Reemplazo de Rodilla. Pero Esta Vez, Conocía a su Donante.

 

cirugía de rodilla esposo donanteMary Parker ha escrito muchas notas de agradecimiento en sus 51 años. Dos de esas notas fueron enviadas a desconocidos, es decir, familias de personas que se convirtieron en donantes de órganos y tejidos. Gracias a ellos, pudo someterse a su primera y segunda cirugía de reemplazo de rodilla.

Sin embargo, Parker tuvo una tercera cirugía de rodilla. Pero esta vez no hubo nota porque conocía a su donante. Era su difunto esposo.

A principios de 2020, Mary Parker y su esposo Eric viajaron a Hawái para celebrar sus 51 y 50 años. Poco después, adoptaron un cachorro y luego llegó la pandemia. Como a ambos les encantaba caminar y correr, pasaron gran parte de su tiempo en cuarentena al aire libre. A principios de mayo se habían establecido en una rutina.

‘La semana anterior, él (Eric) había corrido más de 58 millas y había caminado más de 10 millas con su hija y los perros en las colinas’, dijo Mary Parker.

Una noche de lunes, poco después de acostarse, su cachorro comenzó a quejarse. Mary Parker se levantó y llevó al cachorro a la cama y poco después notó que su esposo estaba roncando.

‘Traté de despertarlo y no se despertaba’, dijo. ‘Y luego dejó de respirar y dio un último suspiro. Y en ese momento, salté y comencé la RCP, mi hija llamó al 911’.

Para cuando los médicos hicieron que su corazón volviera a latir, habían pasado más de 45 minutos. Una semana después, la hija de Mary y Eric Parker estaba con ellos cuando lo desconectaron del ventilador. Cuando le preguntaron sobre la donación de órganos/tejidos, Mary Parker sabía que eso es lo que su esposo habría querido. También consideró la posibilidad de recibir una nota de agradecimiento de otra familia algún día.

Meses después, Mary Parker llevó a su perro a caminar por el campo y tropezó.

‘Mi rodilla hizo un ruido y me derribó’, dijo.

Su médico le dijo que necesitaba otra cirugía de rodilla.

“No sé qué me hizo pensar”, dijo Mary Parker, “pero se me ocurrió preguntar si tengo que tener otro reemplazo de ACL y tengo que tener otro donante, ¿por qué no puede ser Eric?”

Seis meses después de que Eric Parker diera su último aliento, Mary Parker se sometió a la cirugía. El procedimiento fue un éxito y ahora está aprendiendo lentamente a mover la pierna nuevamente.”

 

El Impacto de la Donación Tejidos

La relación médica entre la cirugía de reconstrucción del ligamento cruzado anterior (ACL) o reemplazo de rodilla y la donación de órganos y tejidos está en el uso de tejidos donados para llevar a cabo el procedimiento quirúrgico. En el caso de una cirugía de ACL, a menudo se utiliza tejido de donantes fallecidos, como tendoneso para reconstruir el ligamento dañado. Esto se debe a que estos tejidos son compatibles con el cuerpo humano y pueden proporcionar una alternativa efectiva para reparar el ligamento dañado. Por lo tanto, la donación de órganos y tejidos puede desempeñar un papel crucial en la atención médica de personas que necesitan cirugía de ACL u otros procedimientos quirúrgicos que requieren tejidos donados para su reparación o reconstrucción.

Tracking steps for the Wyoming Donor Dash:

ASICS Runkeeper™ app: Pro Tip: we recommend going to your mobile device’s app store to download the app first. One note: ASICS Runkeeper™ app operates with GPS technology to track your distance. If plan to use a treadmill, we recommend you skip down to option 2 to manually upload your race results. Here’s how the app works

    • Step One: From your mobile device, go to www.raceroster.com and login to the account you used to register for Wyoming Donor Dash. Forgot your password? No problem! Just follow the prompts from the login page to reset your password.
    • Step Two: Select “ Wyoming Donor Dash” from “Recent Registrations”. You’ll see your registration confirmation number and a teal button that says “Connect to my app”. Click the button to go to the Virtual Race.
    • Step Three: Your mobile device will prompt you to download or open the ASICS Runkeeper™ app from your mobile device app store. Downloading the app is free and no subscription is required to complete the Donor Dash Virtual 5K. If you come to a pop-up screen with paid subscription options, there is an X in the upper right hand corner you can click to close and proceed. You’ll set up an account on the app. Once you’re ready, from the “Start” menu on the bottom, click “Free Run”.
    • Step Four: Verify your name and click “Wyoming Donor Dash”. Please note- if you have registered for other upcoming virtual races through Race Roster, they will also appear here. You will be prompted “Are you ready to start your Donor Dash Virtual 5K activity?”. Only click “Start Your Race” if you’re ready to complete the 5K. If you’d like to go for a warm-up or practice run to familiarize yourself with the app, we recommend starting the run until you’re ready to make it count.
    • Step Five: On your mark, get set, go! Once you finish the run, your results will be automatically e-mailed to you.

Q: How long is the Wyoming Donor Dash?

A: The Wyoming Donor Dash will take place from approximately 8am – 11am.

Q: Where does the Wyoming Donor Dash take place?

A: The Wyoming Donor Dash takes place at the Tate Pumphouse in Casper, Wyoming. Participants will cross the North Platte River to begin the race and follow the Platte River Trails around the Three Crowns Golf course, returning to the Tate Pumphouse to conclude the 5k.

Q: What if the weather is bad?

A: Wait five minutes and the weather will change in Wyoming right? We know the weather here can change quickly, but it can also be beautiful and we think Wyomingites are strong because we can weather the storms! Please be prepared to be outside for this event. It could be warm or chilly in April, we never know! Participants are expected to check-in and then gather outside the Tate Pumphouse between the back Patio and North Platte River area. Presentations will take place outside.

A: Restrooms are available inside the Tate Pumphouse and one on the race course.

Q: Is there parking available?

A: Parking is available at the Tate Pumphouse.

Q: Does everyone need to register?

A: This is a common question of the frequently asked questions! Every participant who will be actively participating and completing the 5K should register for the event. This event is a great family event for all ages! However, if you are participating in the event with young family members (toddlers and infants), who will accompany you, but will not complete the 5K on their own – they do not need to register.

Q: Can I bring my pet/dog to the race?

A: We love to see your furry family members, but we must insist that you keep them leashed and outside of the Tate Pumphouse. Please also remember to be respectful of pets that may not be comfortable around other furry friends or human friends. All pet owners must pick up after their furry family members and dispose of their accidents appropriately.

Q: I heard something about an event playlist. Can you tell me more about it?

A: Absolutely! We have asked those connected to donation and transplantation to help us build a Spotify playlist that participants can listen to while participating in the Wyoming Donor Dash. The songs on the playlist might remind someone of a donor, a donor’s family or loved ones, or could be a song that kept a transplant recipient motivated throughout their transplant journey. Be sure to follow the Wyoming Donor Dash on Spotify and enjoy it during the 5K, or any time really!

Q: Where does registration money go?

A: Your registration fee helps to cover the cost of the event including t-shirts, event logistics and location fees, permitting, safety and insurance costs, and marketing costs. The Wyoming Donor Dash is an awareness-raising event and proceeds are applied, as of 2022, to grow the event in an effort to further educate and inspire support of organ, eye and tissue donation in our local community and state.
